the GOP is suppose to be about personal responsibility , part of responsibility is paying for yourself...if we have to increases taxes to get out of this hole that is fine with me, as long as they come with deep cuts into entitlement programs.....its good to see the GOP actually spitting in Grover Norquist's face and walking away from his ridiculous pledge.....anyone that can say we should NEVER raise taxes is a fool....

The White House has been hyping its #My2K Twitter hashtag in an attempt to galvanize supporters to contact their Congressional representatives to demand action to avert the fiscal cliff.  The administration estimates that unless Congress moves, the average family's tax bill will jump by more than $2,000, starting on the first of January.  The implication, of course, is that Republicans are once again standing in the way of resolving this problem.  Show of hands -- as the media breathlessly follows every minor twist and turn of these negotiations, how many of you have seen this fact reported?
